RTB House Statement on Google’s Privacy Sandbox Proposal

Ever since the announcement of “Privacy Sandbox” proposals, RTB House has perceived them as long-term, sustainable solutions supporting legitimate advertising use cases while respecting user privacy.

Since January 2020, we have put every effort into making our platform fully compatible with the Privacy Sandbox vision. We recently announced a vital milestone: RTB House is the first DSP to successfully use Privacy Sandbox’s FLEDGE simulation, globally buying real advertising impressions for almost 500 advertisers. This is proof that the RTB House platform infrastructure is ready for the upcoming changes.

Today’s update from Google regarding the timeline for Privacy Sandbox milestones is one that we see as a quite positive move. It gives a more realistic timeline for other market participants and corresponds with engagement with the United Kingdom’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), as well as being in line with the commitments Google has offered.

We perceived today’s update to be a reaction to the United Kingdom’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) engagement, and feel it is in line with the commitments Google has offered. As a DSP which already uses Privacy Sandbox’s FLEDGE simulation, using it to globally buy real advertising impressions for almost 500 advertisers, we find the new timeline more realistic from the perspective of preparation for change by other market participants. It also gives more time for the community to test the next-generation solution.

The new, more realistic timeline should provide wider engagement on the testing stage of FLoC and FLEDGE and thus provide even better quality of the end solution implemented inside the browser – one that is 100% market-ready. We believe that these are both positive aspects. Still, according to Google’s commitments, we are missing a detailed timeline for the testing and implementation of particular proposals inside Privacy Sandbox.

This update is about sharing a high-level timeline with the community. Both advertisers and publishers will get more time for engagement, testing, and contributions to Privacy Sandbox. However, the general direction in which things are moving has not changed.

It is essential to highlight that Google has transparently shared that “Chrome will phase out support for third-party cookies over a three-month period” after the published deadline.

RTB House is the first DSP to successfully use Privacy Sandbox’s FLEDGE next-generation ads system, globally buying real advertising impressions

Ever since the announcement of “Privacy Sandbox” proposals, RTB House has perceived them as potential long-term, sustainable solutions supporting legitimate advertising use cases while respecting user privacy. Since January 2020, we have put every effort into making our platform fully compatible with the Privacy Sandbox vision.

As part of this work, we engaged in discussions with industry members at the W3C to conduct experiments of the new privacy-preserving advertising. At RTB House, we were convinced that such tests would bring important insights into the potential of the behavioral targeting and personalization parts of the Privacy Sandbox ecosystem. Our discussions led to the start of tests as part of an ongoing simulation. We are currently running them in compliance with Google’s specifications. The full results will be published and put up for wider discussion in the industry.

At RTB House, we have recently reached an important milestone. We have completed the initial adaptation of our technology across the whole ad-serving process using the next-generation approach. As part of this process, we have successfully demonstrated the assignment of Interest Groups to users, the bid stream flow, winning impressions, and conversion attribution. In the end, we were able to serve real ads, using bidding logic as defined by JavaScript routines. This is in full compliance with the upcoming changes.

Our future-proof system has already been used to successfully serve ad impressions in campaigns for almost 500 advertisers. We continue to work on adaptations in order to prepare for Chrome web browser tests of the FLEDGE system starting later this year.

RTB House launches new AI-based product to increase brand awareness and user engagement

Posted by | Press releases | No Comments

 

RTB House – a global company that provides state-of-the-art marketing technologies has employed Deep Learning AI and first party data to create Streaming Video Ads – a brand-new solution aimed at targeting users in the upper stages of the sales funnel. These effective, brand-focused and dynamically-created video ads will offer users a viewing experience based on data-driven personalization enhanced with unique contextual elements and highly personalized storytelling.

Video is a key component of branding exercises, helping to focus marketing messages, improve customer interaction, and support a consistent and captivating brand image. According to a recent study by Wyzowl, when asked how they’d most like to learn about a product or service, two-thirds of people (66%) said they’d prefer to watch a short video. An additional 84% reported that they’ve been convinced to buy a product or service by watching a brand’s video.

To increase impact, RTB House Streaming Video Ads are constantly updated to allow advertisers to execute outstanding, unique and consistent brand strategies. Based on a branding video and powered by RTB House’s state-of-the-art Deep Learning recommendations, Streaming Video Ads are tailored to user preferences in order to present the brand in an engaging and appealing way.

According to RTB House clients, video is particularly effective at targeting users in the upper stages of the sales funnel. To determine which users are located in those stages our Deep Learning algorithms analyze thousands of data points. Based on these advanced calculations, Streaming Video Ads are displayed to an audience which may include users who were previously not engaged with the brand. “Creating a lasting connection with consumers requires a deep understanding of user behaviours. Each journey is unique because every customer is different, with their own set of personal circumstances, needs, preferences, and behaviours. That is why our highly personalized Streaming Video Ads are an effective solution for any digital marketing strategy that embraces a user-centric approach,”  says Łukasz Abgarowicz, Head of New Products at RTB House.

Thanks to RTB House’s partnership with all major inventory partners, Streaming Video Ads are available in all popular video formats for various types of devices. To ensure ads are presented in the desired and brand-safe contexts, placements are analyzed by our proprietary contextual targeting and Brand Safety mechanisms, which use natural language processing to analyze site context for every single impression delivered. To ensure consistent communication, Streaming Video Ads may also be bundled with other ad formats offered by RTB House, including Social Banners, Dynamic Display Banners, Snippet Ads, in-app campaigns, and more.

All Streaming Video Ad formats offer KPIs that measure the video’s branding impact. RTB House’s advanced analytics track a user’s interaction with the brand and deliver valuable insights that allow marketers to tailor their strategies and create an optimal user journey.
